Ride the Tide! 30 Miles - Oceanport to Manhattan Paddle

Ride the Tide! 30 Miles - Oceanport to Manhattan Paddle

About This Campaign

On June 5th, 2021 Bryan Zinski (40) will be paddling (SUP) 30 miles from the Oceanport Paddle Club to the tip of Manhattan to raise funds and/or awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Bryan truly believes in the organization and the work they do for children who need positive role models.
This arduous paddle will begin at Oceanport Creek in the Shrewsbury River, head into Sandy Hook Bay, follow the dangerous Ambrose Shipping Channel, pass under the Verrazano Bridge, head up the Hudson River, and finally arrive at Lower Manhattan. During this 30-mile journey, paddlers will experience everything from calm backwaters, extremely rough bay conditions, wind, currents, and dangerous shipping traffic.
